Hi. I just recently bought the TV402U version of the Plextor Convertx. I have been using WinDVD to do my capturing but sometimes the video is choppy when I'm recording. Also, I have been recording vcr tapes that are over 3 hours long. I have been capturing them using the highest dvd setting in mpeg2. WinDVD splits up the video into two parts. When I use TMPGEnc Author to authorize the first part of the video, it works fine but when I go to do the second part, it saids that the mpeg2 file is an illegal file? I've also captured with GoCap, but the same things happen. What are the overall best programs to use with the ConvertX? Thanks also Here are the specs of my computer Athlon XP 2000 756 MB of Ram Geforce FX 5200 video card.
